The president of the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) International Reverend Frank Chikane is expected in the country today.
Chikane is expected to bring together the two warring factions within the local AFM church.
AFM Zimbabwe recently split into two factions, one led by the church’s president Dr Aspher Madziyire, and the other by Reverend Cosam Chiyangwa.
Reverend Chiyangwa was Dr Madziyire’s deputy before the church was thrown into turmoil. The fights emanated from one of the factions’ move to amend the church’s constitution.
A source who spoke to the Herald had this to say
As you are aware there are fights between Pastor Madziyire and Pastor Chiyangwa. There is a visit by our AFM International president Rev Chikane from South Africa on a fact-finding mission on the two factions to try and bring sanity to the church.
The Government position on the matter is quite clear in that they do not want to interfere with the issue as it is in the courts and they feel that the courts will do a justice to the matter since it is an administrative issue that emanated from the infringement of the church’s constitution.
